Why Compete – Teachers

It’s no secret that competition and external motivation are two things every teacher can use in the classroom. These kinds of statements are a dime a dozen—but there’s more to school and education than the learning of information. Likewise, there is more to competition than a report card or a medal. Competition is simply one way to engage students in activities on their own interests and levels. 

TeenEagle understands this. We try to involve every aspect of our competition, from our preparation to our resources, in a way that supports this philosophy. Our competitions are made to give students real-world scenarios to practise soft skills. We’re not looking for rote memorization. We’re looking for the ability to find a role in a team of complete strangers, speak eloquently and with passion to a panel of people, and take lessons from within a classroom to a brand-new context. 

In terms of educators, the teachers we work with hold the fact that students genuinely like TeenEagle competitions as a massive plus. Our teachers see us as an accessible competition that upholds bonds with our participants and our teachers. However, we also try to directly work with our educators and make TeenEagle an experience for them as well. In our Global Finals, all educators that come as supervisors will also be a part of certified class trainings, too. Our online training also provides ways for educators to engage with their students on an international scope. 

All educators are welcome to reach out to TeenEagle and ask questions—not just on how their students can compete, but on how they can progress with their specific educational needs as well. We are always open to comments and suggestions. Most of all, we try to see every educator that joins us as a symbiotic relationship. 

Learning is a journey. Education should be a journey as well. Together, we can provide an international platform for all students to learn and succeed.
